    Ive received a copyright strike on one of my videos. At the end of my videos, I use a song for my outro. My outro is no longer than 10 seconds. In the video that has been striked, I use the song Tritonal - Anchor (Noisestorm Remix). Notice how it is a Noisestorm remix.

    When I looked into the reason why I received a strike, it was because I used the song Tritonal - Anchor. But it doesn't specify Noisestorm Remix.

    On top of that, I have used the song in at least 30 or 40 of videos, and have not received a copyright strike. I have watched other videos where the content creator has used the whole song, without giving credit. I used about 8 seconds of the song and give credit in the description. Yet I still receive a strike.

    I don't mind my video being taken down, but I do mind that my channel is in bad standing. Maybe I'm missing something quite obvious, if so could someone help me out, much appreciated :).

    Remixes are a strange legal entity. Im not very experienced with them, but by the limitations of fair use Id say it would be very hard to dispute any claim.

    Sometimes a remix still has sections that are the same as the original. Does your 10 second outro exactly match that of the original song?

    No its not the same. The bit I don't understand is, how only that one video got a copyright strike, despite me using it many times. And that other people used the whole song or at least more of it than I did.

    Not all strikes come from the content ID system. It's possible someone, or the rights owner, reported just that video.
